Woops! My mistake. This is the one I was thinking of:

I remember seeing them both when I was a kid (I'm 41, not much younger than you), but my kids will never see them except in recordings. A shame how the PC trend has robbed us of some excellent cartoons.

I'm a big fan of the old Looney Tunes. They sought to entertain kids and adults at the same time, and came up with some pretty clever stuff in doing so. Things have changed, but a lot of their stuff is still funny now, 65 to 75 years after it was produced. I can't say the same about the stuff churned out by Disney or MGM at the time.

Oh, come now. Disney: Donald Duck cartoons are still funny. Goofy cartoons too. MGM: I still laugh out loud at Tom & Jerry.

Disney was just "cute." MGM was the same before Tex Avery moved there, and he never created any new characters comparable to those he did at WB. Tom and Jerry just don't stand up to Bugs and Elmer :-)

YES Tom and Jerry is about the only classic cartoon I rate. By classic I mean my parents watched it when they were little too! :)
